Islands
The xx Lyrics


I don't have to leave anymore
What I have is right here
Spend my nights and days before
Searching the world for what's right here

Underneath and unexplored
Islands and cities I have looked
Here I saw
Something I couldn't over look
I am yours now
So now I don't ever have to leave
I've been found out
So now I'll never explore

See what I've done
That bridge is on fire
Going back to where I've been
I'm froze by desire
No need to leave

Where would I be
IF this were to go under
It's a risk I'd take
I'm froze by desire
As if a choice I'd make

And I am yours now
So now I don't ever have to leave
I've been found out
So now I'll never explore

So now I'll never explore

I don't have to leave anymore 
What I have is right here 
Spend my nights and days before 
Searching the world for what's right here 

Underneath and unexplored 
Islands and cities I have looked 
Here I saw 
Something I couldn't over look 

I am yours now 
So now I don't ever have to leave 
I've been found out 
So now I'll never explore 

See what I've done 
That bridge is on fire 
Going back to where I've been 
I'm froze by desire 
No need to leave 

Where would I be 
IF this were to go under 
It's a risk I'd take 
I'm froze by desire 
As if a choice I'd make 

I am yours now 
So now I don't ever have to leave 
I've been found out 
So now I'll never explore [x2] 

So now I'll never explore ❤❤❤

so ahead of its time. This whole album sounds incredible even in 2021.

Dude I listened to them and Billie Eilish before people even knew her years ago. Back in like 2012 to 2013

@Darren Lamb I agree

Nothing is ever ahead of its time. Especially not in 2009. There had been music a great deal more complicated and whatever else a long long time before this came along. I loved this album but to say it was ahead of it's time is just ridiculous.

It's so unique in how it sounds. Sure it fits into a genre, but it's not like where you go, "ah yeah this sound was popular from 200X to 200X or ah yeah, sounds like a song from early [era]." I think those bold, simple riffs on the guitar that cut through everything really contributes. It's not just some droning rythm in the background. It plays really well with the vocals.

I love listening to this album, especially this song, when I'm alone at night, sitting on the couch with lights out, a candle lit, sipping on some blueberry wine.

This video is a masterpiece. Whoever had this idea is a genius. Each character has a role and each scene changes very subtly, but extremely strong. Executed very well.

Darren Lamb

It's so simple and I'm sure it didn't cost a fortune to make but it's still such a great video.
